The Bahrain parliament on Tuesday approved a law which makes contacts with Israel illegal, according to a Reuters report. Opposition lawmaker Jalal Fairooz was quoted in the report as saying, "Whoever holds any communication or official talks with Israeli officials or travels to Israel will face a fine ... and/or a jail sentence of three to five years." "The motivation is that steps are being taken by certain countries to allow certain talks to be held with Israeli officials. Israeli delegates have managed to participate in events in Arab countries with no treaties with Israel," the report further quoted Fairooz as saying.
